Shower Curb Slope

Looking for some advice. Been around for a while on here using a lot of the other post to learn. I can’t find anything to answer my question. In my hast of installing my granite shower curb, I only got the slope to 1/8”. I was going for 1/4”, but my wife came in and was talking to me and I didn’t pay attention. I just though about it this morning and checked it to see my error. Do I need to remove it or will it be fine with just a 1/8” fall?

Welcome, Nick,

How long has the curb top been set? What setting product did you use? What substrate was it set on? You and Mrs. Nick going to be using a glass door or a curtain?

Kerdi curb that was cut down to lessen the height. Kerdi allset, it was set yesterday afternoon, and we are using a custom glass door. I won’t be able to get to it until tomorrow morning though.

Yeah, not likely you'd be able to remove it tomorrow morning without possibly damaging the Kerdi on top of the curb.

While 1/4" slope would be better the curb will likely still not drain off all the water, surface tension will prevent all of it from draining off.

Ya might just need to make squeegeeing it part of your routine.
